Man banned from Disney World for life.

Trespassing is wrong, illegal, dangerous, and a liability to WDW. They were 100% in the right to do what they did.. but I admit, I love those back stage, closed attraction peeks at things.

Backstage looks like the receiving area of every mall everywhere: really nothing special. Just think of the hullabaloo if that yahoo was injured somehow while sneaking around? He is lucky Disney was so polite: try sneaking around inside any other business, and go to jail and get fined big bucks.

I have been following Adam the Woo for a long time now and I am not surprised this happened to him. As much as I love seeing backstage its one thing to go back there and then another to record it and put it on youtube. If you are doing something you know you should not be doing then why show the world you are doing it.

they also fire employees that steal...
but only sometimes with managers...if it doesn't cause a stir or hit he news...
sometimes they make them pay back what they steal and demote them...
but not always...depending on how well they "fit the part"

Way back in the early 80's when there was only the Magic Kingdom, I remember when I was in high school on a band trip our band was in the afternoon parade. I remember when we were back stage getting ready to go onto the parade route, we were told, absolutely no pictures were to be taken. If anyone was caught taking pictures, their camera would be confiscated. Well, one of our band members took a few pictures, and guess what - they had their camera taken from them, the film was removed from the camera, and they were given the camera back, and warned if they do it again, they would be removed from the park.

They were very serious about things like that back then!

Smile ~I hope it was worth it!

~That's too bad -- it may be best for him to leave to Florida all together, because I am willing to bet, he will try to sneak his way back into WDW. He better start over in California, and enjoy the parks again as a law abiding citizen, before he ends up in jail. This guy better thank his lucky stars, while the punishment is harsh, it could have been far worse.

As he was dumb enough to post on Youtube he deserves the punishment.

Easy!

Easy with the name calling please. Adam may have made some poor choices by posting his fan driven material but I think "Idiot" is a bit harsh. If you haven't taken the time to visit his You Tube channel "Adam the woo" you should have a look. Adam is an urban explorer, and his material is very entertaining. He knew the risks and what would happen if he was discovered. He now has to live with those ramifications. Adam is far from an idiot!

And there is really nothing to see backstage. No theming, just support structures, doors and dumpsters.

You are better off taking World Drive past the Contemporary and going to the monorail barn and Disney University area. Herder to get caught and there are actually some interesting stuff there.

I don't care what he is. If it says "cast members Only" and your not a "cast member" then you don't belong.

To say make a comment that he wants to... "satisfy a morbid curiosity" and...."I never received any emails from Disney on what I was doing was wrong." is just plain strange.

I was not defending his trespassing, I was addressing the name calling. He does not deserve the label "Idiot" any more than you do.
